    Hey all,

    Looking to get a cream + aftershave bundle of Extro, but am a bit lost as to which scent to get.

    I really am a fan of oud and "dark" scents, but with this hot weather I think I'm missing a very fresh, strong citrus scented product. Also thinking that I could use the aftershave as an EdT. These all caught my attention (including non-ctrussy stuff): Bergamotto di Calabria, Dandy, Isola, O'Selvaggio, Pirata, Positano, Tabacco.

    Does anyone have some wise guidance to share before I pull the trigger? For what it's worth, the best scents I've sniffed recently have been Creed's Royal Oud, WK King of Oud, OSP Orange & Patchouli, Versace Dylan Blue and Acqua Di Gio Profumo.

    Any feedback on Extro performance is also very much welcome.

    Thanks again ATG.

    Have you considered O'Selvaggio? Its Don's homage to Dior Eau Sauvage, not tried it yet myself but gets very good reviews.

    Yes I did consider O'Selvaggio (included it in the post). Any others you've read about?

    Thanks Doctor.

    I have the o' Selvaggio aftershave, it's a great scent. Quite citrussy but with a little something else in there. I'm rubbish at describing scents but I'm using it very frequently recently.

    D'oh! Somehow missed that. @Nick_S has done a youtube review on the Selvaggio so you might want to seek that out.The only other I've seen @ShaunWistow using is Arancia Italia which is supposedly somewhat similar to Acqua di Parma Arancia di Capri.

    The only Extro I’ve tried, O’Selvaggio fits the bill perfectly in being a strong, fresh yet well grounded citrus. (I tried out adding a drop of vetiver EO to it to get closer to the 2012 formulation of Eau Sauvage Parfum, which indeed worked.)

    The other one on my list is liquorice and magnolia FYI, but I haven’t tried it yet and thus can’t say anything about it.

    Thank you everyone for weighing in. Ready to pass an order on shavingstation as soon as they restock the aftershave.

    @Assmilkplz - I am sure you will love the Extro once you make a choice on scents :) The performance is absolutely spot on.
